In the midst of summer camping, hiking, or lounging on the soft sand of a warm beach, we’re reminded of the nourishing joy of our chief life-force: water. Often called a “carrier of information,” water is a living, changing, and life-giving energy. Our happy little friend is in its most harmonious state when nestled in the mountainside; the molecules form a perfect crystalline structure while it resonates with the powerful energy of the Earth. That is why you may have heard that spring water bottled at the source offers greater health. While the molecules remain the same, the structure can shape differently when molecules come together. Molecules in a crystalline structure hold in the vibrational energy that then gets released into our bodies when we consume them, and we are fuller, stronger, purer.
Water that’s purified or distilled causes the structure to form a chaotic shape. Thus, we are, in essence, consuming chaotic energy. But, if you’re like most busy Americans, adventuring out into the wilderness to spring water from the earth is not on your daily “to-do” list, and spring waters in fancy bottles can add up (as well as cause much unnecessary waste).
However, there’s a fun and beautiful way to improve the life-force of water. By bringing the mountain back to the water! Well, in a way. We can place that which was mined from the earth–crystals–into our water. Known as gem elixirs, gem waters, crystal waters, or crystal essences, their vibrations help to restructure water back into its harmonious crystalline shape. And while you can go small and add a couple Quartz points to amplify the water’s energy, you can also go big and create “cocktails.” Be sure to research though! Not all crystals create happiness in water and some are not healthy to ingest.
Give it a try!
- First clean the crystals with running water.
- Next put them in a glass or clay pitcher.
- Fill with water and allow it to sit for 8 hours.
- Cover the pitcher with a napkin or cheese cloth to prevent impurities from getting in.
- Add the gemstone(s) of your choosing!
Clear Quartz~Clarity, awareness, neutrality. Strengthens perception, attention, memory and understanding. Increases the effect of other crystals.
Rose Quartz~Warmth, love, empathy, directness, sensitivity, sensuality, romance. Makes one aware of one’s own needs.
Carnelian~Stability, courage, trust, creativity. Combats negativity; enhances love of life; makes one capable and successful.
Citrine~Abundance and prosperity; brings about joy and enthusiasm.
It is important that you clean the water pitcher and the mineral crystals on a frequent basis to avoid bacterial growth. Wash the mineral crystals and pitcher weekly, and allow to dry.
Once a month place the mineral crystals outside for 24 hours. This will expose the crystals to the natural piezoelectric and solar frequencies, therefore binding the biophotons into the geometric structure of the crystals.
